Book Description

3 Jun 2013
Mitch Epsteins new work is a series of photographs of the idiosyncratic trees that inhabit New York City. These pictures underscore the importance of trees to urban life and their complex relationship to their human counterparts. Rooted in New Yorks sidewalks, parks, and cemeteries, some trees grow wild, some are contortionists adapting to constrictive surroundings, while others are pruned into prize specimens. As urban development closes in on them, surprisingly, New Yorks trees continue to thrive. From 2011 to 2012, Epstein explored New Yorks five boroughs in search of remarkable trees, often returning to photograph the same trees through the changing seasons and light. Many of these trees, Epstein learnt, were planted in one contexta farm or nursery, for instanceand had survived to be part of another, a city street or public garden; and most will likely outlive us to find their habitat continue to change. The cumulative effect of these photographs is to invert peoples usual view of their city: trees no longer function as background, but instead dominate the human life and architecture around them. Born in 1952 in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Mitch Epstein is one of Americas most influential contemporary photographers and recipient of the 2011 Prix Pictet photography prize. Epsteins books at Steidl include Family Business (2003), Recreation: American Photographs 19731988 (2005), and American Power (2009) which won a Deutscher Fotobuchpreis gold medal in 2010.

New York trees captured tenderly in all their beauty. Wonderful photographs of both nature and New York. The book takes you through all five NY boroughs. Beautiful juxtaposition to Epstein's American Power.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful 26 Jan 2014
By Leo Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beautiful photographs that document trees around New York City, Who would have known? I love this style of black and white objective photography and the subject is surprising and a revelation to me at least. If trees interest you and photography interests you I think you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York Arbor 17 Nov 2013
By derek Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
fantastically executed and well seen photography. It's a little different to what you may expect from Epstein. As Gerry Badger would say its "quiet photography". Its great to see 8 x 10" photography is still practised in this digital age.
The reproduction is beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Photos 1 Aug 2013
By StraightBlue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love the black and whites. Highly recommend this book, the trees are amazing. I was surprised by some of the stories behind the photos-Mitch definitely has some patience in getting the right shot. The book is a keeper, kept out in the living room where guests and family can view it for inspiration.
